including the first 15 mile an hour zone around the school. peabody school on sixth and clement of which 100 have been approved, other schools throughout the city since then. also, other richmond district projects have included [speaker not understood] caracases and new peabody, and new traffic light near elementary school. assembly bill authored by assemblyman ammiano solidify safe routes to school program updating the administrative structure and guarantees the program has at least $46 million in funding. this will allow us to keep making schools safe not just in san francisco, but also throughout the state. the rest i'll submit. thank you. >> thank you, supervisor mar. supervisor avalos. >> thank you, madam clerk. today i'm introducing a resolution for us to vote urging bart to allow bikes access to the bart trains, at
6:28am
